HOW PATCHWORK
BECAME COOL

Make a sartorial statement this season with the ultimate hero piece: the patchwork coat. Think standout appeal with minimal effort

No longer just a technique for fixing your jeans or creating cosy quilts, patchwork is officially cool in the fashion stakes. Be it block-colour suede for a Seventies spin or clashing florals to pull off a true Bohemian rhapsody, this is a trend that will take any look to the next level. Go for a patchwork coat – the ultimate piece in any winter wardrobe – and you’ve got a guaranteed statement in the making. Yes, it’s a bold move but the neutral colour palette of this M&S Collection design keeps it sophisticated. Best worn with simple separates – think black tailoring or denim – the key is to let the coat speak for your entire outfit.
